Posca Markers Info
Posca Markers are acrylic ink pens that dry to become waterproof. Drying time is 2 to 20 minutes depending on ink use and humidity. Posca's are high-pigment, light-fast and non-toxic. The colours are eye-catching and flat matt in appearance, a look that is very unique to Posca art.
The pens come in various sizes with different shaped nibs. Line thicknesses
vary from .7mm (similar to a broad biro) to a chunky 15mm. The nibs allow for
different art-styles. The most popular for surfboard art are the 5M (light blue
one) and 8K (red one). The 17K (white one) can often be seen on used car
windscreens. Colour availability is varied with some sizes having more than 30
Posca pens can be used directly on many surfaces including metal, wood, glass, most plastics, plaster, canvas and more. Once dry the artwork can be sealed with spray or paint-on varnish. Artists acrylic varnish is recommended. Also, 2 pack resin can be poured over artwork for a glossy, under-glass look.
To remove from glass, such as windscreens and shop windows, use a scraper blade at an angle to peel the posca away from the glass. Clean up with Windex.
